G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review

I went to go see the new G.I. Joe this morning in extravagant, eye-popping IMAX 3D glory, because if you’re gonna do something silly, you might as well go for broke.  And to be perfectly honest, I wasn’t expecting much.  It’s based on a insanely ridiculous cartoon from the 80s, and the first movie completely underwhelmed.  Which I think is tough to do when your subject material is positively bursting with jet powered, laser blasting air tanks and larger-than-life American superheroes.  So it’s exciting to announce that the sequel was actually a thrilling, edge of your seat, action blockbuster!*
